Our web design & build process

We stick to a thorough 4-stage plan when designing and building our websites.

Phase 1

Research & planning

User experience (UX design), wireframes, prototyping

We meticulously research and plan the websites we are asked to design. Through competitor benchmarking, we analyse your sector and position in the market and decide how best to differentiate your site from competitors. 

Our planning strategy is thorough. We create skeleton versions of your website (wireframes) so we can visualise the overall layout. We test the usability of the site before the design phase, ensuring that everything is working effectively.

Phase 2

Visual design

User interface (UI design), responsive design and visuals

The design phase is the exciting part. We get creative. Using the stripped-back wireframes, we begin to add the colour and images that will showcase your brand. Consistency is really important here, as we want your brand to be as impactful as possible - right across the board.

We’ll ensure the website we design for you is completely responsive. Our websites are created to be used across all mediums. We can guarantee your font will look pixel-perfect at every screen size, from desktop to mobile. Our designs are intuitive, efficient, and convenient - and always designed with the user in mind.

Phase 3

Build & development

CMS, WordPress, plug-ins

Now our development team step in. They set up the CMS (often WordPress) and begin to build the pages needed for your website. Here, they begin to code any custom functionality and install the necessary plug-ins. 

Our developers have decades of experience between them. We build your website according to industry standards - and our own high expectations. We make sure we have robust mobile responsive layouts in place for smooth user experience.

Phase 4

Testing, launch & support

The testing phase involves checking performance on various devices, as well as tracking and correcting any bugs. Through our thorough testing process, we always consider the journey of the user, and adjust to guarantee they have a positive, intuitive experience.

We have a careful procedure for handling site launches to make sure we get your website seen when it needs to be. Post-launch, we can continue to support you with industry-leading hosting. We have a wide range of support options, including website maintenance, design & development/feature updates, SEO and digital marketing.

“Our goal here at 22 Group, is to build a website for you that delivers maximum value and return, with minimum fuss. A dynamic website can automate many areas of business and make day-to-day operations far smoother for you and your team.”
